The great essayist and economist pens a tribute to his colleague and teacher. Dr. Peterson knew Dr. Mises well. Both were professors at New York University. In this monograph, he describes his temperament and personality as well as his scholarly contributions — all in Peterson's legendary style. It is a fascinating portrait and moving tribute to a master.
